It’s nice to come home to new books.

I took the kiddos to see the Lego Movie the other day and afterward Sara and I were talking about it. She was asking me about why President Business wanted to control everyone and how the citizens were defending themselves and what it was all really about. So I was telling her that he had his own specific idea of how he wanted things to be and his ideas weren’t better or worse than anyone else’s and the citizens just wanted to be able to make their own choices so that they could all work together to be more creative and happy and could learn from each other. And she looked at me at one point and said “Well President Business shouldn’t do that because it’s their bodies and he can’t control someone else’s body”
Sara is 6. I love this child. She is the future and I love my job so much.
"Not queer like gay. Queer like, escaping definition. Queer like some sort of fluidity and limitlessness at once. Queer like a freedom too strange to be conquered. Queer like the fearlessness to imagine what love can look like…and pursue it."
